Like we do every year, The Harbolt Company is raising money to sponsor lots of less fortunate children for Christmas. This is to provide Christmas for lots of children in Oklahoma that normally wouldn't have a Christmas. This year we are super excited to be sponsoring 24 children so far but will keep adding more the more money we raise. To help raise money for this, we are doing a raffle to give away a very lightly used  and in perfect physical and working condition Braille Edge 40 Braille display or your choice for a cash payout of $500. The display includes the zippered carrying case and all chargers and cables. This Braille display is valued at around $1100 and was over $2000 new. Each raffle ticket purchased will count as one entry and enter you to win this awesome package. The more tickets you buy, the better chance at winning. 5 or more tickets purchased will also get you a $10 off gift certificate to be used on the Harbolt Company web site. Not only, do you have a chance to win this awesome Braille display or $500 in cash, but it's a chance to help out lots of children for Christmas. If you do not wish to be a part of the raffle giveaway, we also will have a way to make a straight monotary donation. Please see the link below for that option. The Harbolt Company has the best customers around and we know that like years past, you will step up and help provide a great Christmas for lots of children. We will start out sponsoring 15 but we will continue to add more children the more money we raise. It takes about $100 per child so each $100 we will add children for sponsorship. Our starting goal is $1500 but hope to be able to do more. Last year we raised over $5000. Let's see if we can beat that! Thanks in advance to all who participate and good luck to everyone!

Sharp Talking Time 1 CT660E. Excellent condition With Lanyard

When the Sharp CT 660E “Talking Time” was introduced in 1979 it represented a technological breakthrough.  It was based on the first use of LSI (large scale integration) construction as opposed to the usual method at that time of mounting discrete components to a printed circuit board.  That made it an amazingly sophisticated product in the consumer marketplace at that time.  While there had been electro-mechanical “talking” devices previously this was the first talking clock to synthesize an actual human voice.  Talking products had a short-lived popularity in the 1980’s (who can forget your car insisting that “your door is a jar”) and then for the most part faded away.
The exterior is a brushed chrome colored plastic material, however there are no signs of any of the coloration wearing off as with so many chromed-plastic products.  The faceplate appears to be glass, as there are absolutely no scratches or signs of discoloration.  The LCD screen is not illuminated.  There is one small yellow button mounted on the top to activate having the clock announce the time.  The only other external control is a thumbwheel volume control.
On the bottom is a snap-open door (that also functions as a stand to hold the clock at an easier to see angle).  Under the door is a 6-position slider switch to set the time/alarm and to set the timer for 1, 5, or 30 minutes (plus a “normal” position).  There are 3 pushbuttons for hour, minutes & set, a slide switch to activate the alarm and another 2-position slider for clock or stopwatch.
By manipulating the buttons and sliders in combination you can set a fairly sophisticated array of timer/stopwatch activities including elapsed time spoken announcements and accumulated lap time announcements.   You can also set it to announce the time at periodic intervals.  When set for time announcement a matter-of-fact male voice announces "It's 1:27 PM".  When the alarm is set,  a few bars of music plays, followed by "Attention please, the time is, 1:27 PM followed by a brief interlude of Boccherini's Minuet.  If the alarm is set and you don’t shut it off immediately it automatically goes into a snooze alarm mode with the next alert stating “The time is …. PLEASE HURRY”
SIMILAR TO:  first of its type. Introduced talking devices of every kind and millions of cheap talking clocks/watches in the decade to follow. These are becoming increasingly rare

as alluded to, the influence this device had on speech synthesized products is legend.  When you look at it the case (about the size of a pack of king-sized cigarettes, if you can relate to that) seems huge to contain nothing more than a talking clock, but in 1979 every millimeter of internal space was packed with technology that previously would have required the dimensions of a shoebox (if you can relate to that).

This unit is in excellent condition with lanyard. It works perfect. I can offer an audio tutorial on this that I did for another customer.
